Marvel Fan Pulls Off Perfectly Timed New Year 'I Am Iron Man' Moment
| Last updated
One guy has pulled off an absolute blinder with his perfectly timed Avengers New Year's Eve moment:
A YouTube user posted the unbelievably satisfying clip, which showed the clock hitting midnight on 1 January 2020, just as Avengers: Endgame reaches Tony Stark's 'I am Iron Man' moment. Perfect.
The camera then pans out to look at the famous Sydney fireworks, with the MCU moment timed perfectly with a backdrop of colourful explosives.
According to a Reddit thread, the Marvel fan started watching the movie at about 9.15pm, timing it absolutely flawlessly.
He posted it to the social media platform with the caption: "Starting 2020 with a perfectly timed 'I am Iron Man' with Sydney fireworks in the background. Jeez I'm so f***ing happy I pulled this off, pls watch it. Happy New Year from Sydney!"
It seems the MCU fanbase was suitably impressed with the whole thing. One person replied: "Nice! This also would have been awesome with the very first Iron Man movie when he does the Jericho missile test. I'm sure it's been done before though."
Another wrote: "I actually got shivers watching that lol."
And it looks like he's not the only one who had the idea, with someone else commenting: "Damn!! That's impressive. I'm from Sydney and did the same thing but I'm not close enough to get the fireworks in the video as well."
Proving there is always one, however, someone tried to dampen the mood by commenting: "I will never not find these 'play this scene at midnight' things cringey. Plus, I'm sorry but New Year's is that kind of holiday where I want to go out. I ain't staying in watching f***ing Avengers."
Well there you go, you can never please everyone.
Anyway, the scene itself has been subject to much conversation and has become something of an iconic moment. According to editors though, it went through a whole load of different versions before we got the perfect finished result.
According to Jeff Ford, it was never set in stone and the team tried a few different options.
In an interview with Collider, he said: "When we were putting together the end of the movie, when we shot Tony's last moment in the first round, we shot a bunch of different options. Robert [Downey Jr.] had different ideas... We give him space to do that.
"Joe and Anthony [Russo, the movie's directorial team] are great about improv. We shot a run of different performances for that last moment. Some of them were crazy. Some of them we would never have used."
